    Post Mod Application

    Name: LorriePaige

    About you:
    My professional job is an Intuitive Life Coach/Counselor. I have studied Relationships and Psychology for decades. I studied Psychology in high school and college. I have professionally counseled people online and offline in clinics since 1999. I have both gift and professional knowledge. At Twitter, I have helped people, including celebrities, solve their problems. At my Twitter page, I'm always upbeat and my Twitter "brand" is inspirational and positive:

    http://twitter.com/#!/LorriePaige

    Age: 49

    Knowledge of Indigo Society Rules outline here: I have read them all.

    Experience moderating from other forums: I have 2 1/2 years of moderation at two Yahoo Groups--since April 2009:

    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/thechristianwitch

    and it's sister group,

    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/thechristianwitchcourse/

    The owner of both groups had moved on to other beliefs but kept the sites up and had no moderator. Lots of spam came in so I emailed her to complain about all the spam. She said, "How about I make you a moderator for both groups if you want it?" That's how I became a moderator. Actually, I recently mentioned IS to the Christian Witch site and added it to the Links area.

    Activity Level: I post daily in various forums.

    Forums you're interested in & want to inspire: Relationships. Psychology & Sociology.

    Other comments: I also chose Relationships and Psychology/Sociology because I would be especially committed to being a great moderator, as the subjects are my passion and work. Although I am very busy in my life, I would take the time to take care of these forums as it also helps me to contribute in a volunteer way, like a "giving back" in service to the community.

    ***Update: I decided to go for it (also with the suggestion from an online friend of mine); on Saturday, I asked the administrator of both Christian Witch websites if she ever considered transferring her admin. duties to anyone to please consider me...She just transferred my status today to co-administrator/owner (full access) of both Christian Witch sites! I'm thrilled about it! and would look forward to being a moderator here just as much.

    While I agree, it's fairly blatant that the greater majority of this site requires thick skin and quite frankly accepting the title puts a target on your head. Are you willing to accept the weight of the hate?

    Personally, I think you'd do well but I've seen people crack under the bs. Not to mention you have 57 posts in 3 years... are you more of a watcher?

    To let you know, if at some time I didn't make myself clear above, I wanted and became admin for another site (mentioned for experience reasons). Here at IS, I just want to be a forum mod for Relationships and Psychology & Sociology. Not a global mod for the entire site; I don't want to be a mod for the entire website.

    I think what I want to be is separate and called "Forum Caretakers"?

    I had stopped coming here for years...I just got busy with my offline life. When I was here, I posted regularly as I do now.

    Makes sense, we all have lives, I was just curious. And yes, you did make yourself clear but as I've witnessed, the rank is irrelevant. If your name is highlighted in blue that's all that matters. And again, I'm not trying to discourage you or offend you in any way just trying to prepare you. Congratulations on your roles at your other sites btw ^_^

    So long as you can tolerate this nonsense then go for it. It just gets old after awhile.

    I think you'd be great for those forums!! You definitely have the experience and wisdom it seems!

    I'd vote with my confidence for this except I have a question before that Lorie, and I hope you don't mind,
    but recently in the Ouija board thread you made a comment to a Christian member saying

    Quote Originally Posted by LorriePaige View Post

Just watch out for the mods; I don't think they appreciate preachy sermons as I'm sure this board is designed for people to not be judged/put down for their religious beliefs/practices.

    LIVE AND LET LIVE.
    and pulled back from that thread with 'this is why I do not like posting in serious discussions'

    So, what has changed since then that makes you now want to post in serious threads?
    And do you realize that when people disagree or agree to a topic based on their faiths,
    a Christian view or a Buddhist, Taoist, Islamist etc view should not matter and they are free to express that if it is contributing to a good discussion?

    little edit, I do not mean to attack in any way, that post in that thread just triggered me needing to ask this here,
    You sure have the back up and knowledge to be a good mod in relationship advice, I just wanted to clear this before i vote.

    something alike 'you better not preach that here because i am sure mods would not approve'
    i didn't see this and don't know the context but let me remind everyone that opinions and points of view are never moderated, only the mode of presentation. members can hold any positions they wish as long as they are presented in a respectful manner and don't involve porno, hate speech or illegal activities.

    I copied the post I was referring to in the reply that was referring to it, to make sure I did not take words out of context and the original opinion was stated in there.

    np with your post abigail. its about what might have been someone's misconception that opinions are censored by mods, that IS only allows certain opinions. it is only insulting behavior and harassment that is not allowed.

    Yea that was why I wanted to ask Lorrie before I voted, I don't want to be the preacher of morality and I certainly can be quite stubburn in vocation of my own beliefs at times,
    I just wanted to make sure I knew how Lorrie viewed this now, as wanting to become a mod, when she just vocalized that statement not too long ago.


    This ad goes away when you register.

    Thank you for clearing up the official view on this as I think it is very important people of any and every life path are welcome here and can state their opinion based on their path.

    I have since read the rules and know what is accepted on the boards. Actually, the thread was getting off-topic anyway, as the discussion was about Ouija Boards, and one of the rules is not to get off-topic in a thread.

    There are some threads I'd rather not discuss anymore but I do want to discuss/help people in Relationships and Psychology & Sociology. I believe we all have the choice to pick and choose what discussions we want to talk/post about--even mods; mod don't have to give their thoughts on every subject posted. I have no problem discussing certain serious subjects but not everything. I have no problem with people discussing their faiths on IS.

    Fair enough, thank you for the answer, I think there are a lot of threads on IS that do not go from a to b directly, but take a little d tour because people feel the need to explain their view,
    when they are then asked for why their view is their view, it is easy to see it going off topic, but technically, they are being asked on their reasons behind their view on the topic :P

    So yea, I see very little straight lines and a lot of the side tracks are quite valuable most of the time, though it makes for a bit more reading lol.

    I just had to ask, as also relationship threads and especially sociology can have people stating their views from the faith they believe in.
    and I think they should be open in doing so, although they may not be the popular view among the board, people should be able to be open
